OverDrive Offers Curated Lists for Discovering Black Authors

OverDrive’s marketing and communications specialist, Jill Grunenwald, shared curated ebook and audiobook lists for librarians in conjunction with Black History Month. “The truth is, 28 days isn’t enough,” she notes. “We should be reading, promoting, and supporting these books and authors every single day. And while much of the focus of Black History Month is centered on the history of African Americans, it is equally important that we recognize and reckon with what it currently means to be Black in America while also highlighting the joy that can be found in books written by Black authors.”

The lists (login required to view) include African American Romance, Black LGBTQ+ Authors and Characters, Conversations on Race, Racism, & Resistance, YA Books that spotlight #BlackJoy, Books That Showcase Black Talent, and Books by Black Authors Everyone Should Read.

For more information, read the blog post.
